The Nantahala River

Our Nantahala River Rafting Center in Bryson City, NC is only 3 hours from Atlanta and 2.5 hours from Chattanooga. Rafting trips on this river are considered “mild to moderate” adventure level, making them perfect for families with children (7+ years) and beginning rafters. Make a day of your rafting adventure by visiting one (or more) of 3 nearby waterfalls (Indian Creek Falls, Juney Whank Falls, and Tom Branch Falls) before or after your time on the water. Then stay the night at one of dozens of nearby camping and lodging locations or at our Nantahala rafting center bunkhouse or campground. Our cozy campground is outfitted with pea gravel tent sites, a bathhouse, picnic tables, and fire pits. Our awesome dormitory style bunkhouse sleeps up to 72 people and has a full service kitchen, outside grills, and large adjacent bath house—perfect for groups!

The Ocoee and Toccoa Rivers

Our Ocoee River Rafting Center and Toccoa River Tubing Centerare located in McCaysville, GA, a quick 2 hour drive from Atlanta, an hour and a half from Chattanooga, and just 15 minutes from Blue Ridge, GA. The dam-controlled Ocoee River has two separate “hang onto your helmet” sections of surging whitewater, producing the most continuous stretch of class III and IV rapids of any river in the country—perfect for getting your adrenaline rushing! For a calmer expedition, Toccoa River tubing, kayaking, and canoeing are perfect trips if you are looking for a calmer river adventure and for families with children too young for whitewater rafting. Make a day of your rafting adventure by visiting one (or more) of 7 nearby waterfalls (Fall BranchFalls, Long CreekFalls, Willow Creek Falls, Noontootla Falls, High Falls, Black Falls, and Sea Creek Falls) before or after your time on the water. Then stay the night at one of dozens of nearby camping and lodging locations.
